Buena Vista cabin description

We've named our retreat CAVU Cabin. CAVU is an aviation term for "Ceiling and Visibility Unlimited," which is how we feel when we're there, both in sight and in spirit.

Located in the southern portion of South Park, our cabin offers quiet solitude while being convenient to shopping, restaurants and recreation.

Easily accommodating eight, the cabin includes three bedrooms with queen-size beds, a basement room with a full-size futon, 2-3/4 baths, a huge open basement with large-screen TV and game table, deck and walkout. Enjoy evenings with the family at the fire pit off the basement, and cook those BBQs from the patio.

From Denver, the cabin is only a two-hour drive. Colorado Springs, an hour and a half. Then, once you have arrived you're only 20 minutes to the town of Buena Vista. Here there are quaint shops and restaurants, a grocery store and many rafting companies.

Buena Vista is a launching point for countless recreational activities. This is the location of the famed white water rafting opportunities of the Arkansas River. Many rafting outfitters are located within 15 minutes of the cabin. In addition, you can take many driving detours including the most beautiful Cottonwood Pass drive to Taylor Reservoir.

Want quaint shopping opportunities or treks to fun towns? Within 1-1/2 hours of the cabin are Aspen, Breckenridge, Buena Vista, Colorado Springs, Cripple Creek, Fair play, Frisco, Hartsel, Leadville, Poncha Springs, Salida. Even the Great Sand Dunes are within an easy drive

Winter skiing opportunities exist at Monarch, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Keystone, Arapahoe Basin, and Ski Cooper.

Try these other activities on for style:
• mountain biking
• snowmobiling
• photography
• wild life viewing
• gold medal trout fishing
• picnic at nearby reservoirs
• river rafting - summer
• snow skiing and snow shoeing - winter
• shopping - all year
• hiking
• fishing (including Gold Medal Trout)
• hot springs spa - all year

                                      Owner info

                                      Year Purchased: 2007

                                      Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista:
                                      We were looking for an escape from the city. After looking all over the north part of Park County, we were blessed to find CAVU. We were surprised to find how convenient it is to so many places to explore. And it's within the two-hour drive limit from our home in Denver.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                                      This place has it all for us. Spacious, only a mile of dirt road, secluded feel, great views and amenities galore. It's a great place to share with family, friends and the folks we have met through rentals.
